The 'reaction microscope', an electron-ion coincidence momentum imaging spectrometer, represents a unique technique to measure multiply differential ionization cross sections for ionic projectiles. Observed discrepancies with theory for singly ionizing collision of 3.6 MeV/u Au53+ and 100 MeV/u C6+ ions severely challenge theoretical models. We present a method based on event-generators, which allows to consistently incorporate instrumental effects into theory. The result of the convolution procedure suggests, that the observed discrepancies are not a result of the experimental resolution, but are of true physical nature.
